Hello! My name is Holly Watts and I teach first grade at Mountain Springs Elementary. This will be my 7th year to teach. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. I received my Early Childhood Education degree from Harding University in 2004 and just completed my Masters in Educational Leadership. I became a teacher because I love kids. Throughout my years of teaching, I have come to the conclusion that being a teacher is the best job in the world. I have the opportunity to learn something new every single day, and oftentimes, my new learning comes from my students. My goal for our kids is to help them become the best that they can be as individuals and as learners. I want our kids to be happy and successful!
